Ada Lovelace Day recognised by Telegraph

It was really nice to see Ada Lovelace Day (in the form of me) recognised in the Telegraph’s list of The 50 Most Influential Britons in Technology yesterday. It’s good that the effort to bring more women in tech to the fore has been appreciated, and I feel quite chuffed to have been included on their list of influencers.

Unfortunately, there are only five women in the Telegraph’s lower 25. I can’t help thinking that’s slightly ironic, not to mention another indicator that we have long way to go before Ada Lovelace Day becomes unnecessary.

I’ve blogged about the list, and my inclusion on it, in a bit more detail over on Strange Attractor. Meantime, I’ve been considering what needs to happen next with Finding Ada. On which, more news soon!
